Linda I am so saddened to hear of your loss. I have lost a great friend. We had many great conversations and enjoyed being volunteers with the St Joseph Hospital. We will miss her on Tuesdays when she joined us at the senior center.
My condolences to all the family.

Linda and Steve, we are very sorry for your loss. I can remember your mom waiting at the mailboxes for the boys to come home from school. We exchange a few words and waves during that time. She was very friendly to us and she was always on time to greet the bus when it arrived. Our prayer will be for you and your family during this difficult time. Hugs, Shirley & Phil MacLeod.
